How to Prepare to Sell Your Home FSBO

How to Set Timing Expectations for Your Sale

Setting timing expectations for your sale is an important step in preparing yourself emotionally for the overall sale process. Listing your home while having unrealistic expectations for how quickly you’ll find a buyer and how soon you can close is a recipe for disaster.

How to Handle Listing Inquiries

Once your listing is up and running, you will begin receiving inquiries from interested direct buyers and buyer’s agents. It’s important to understand how inquiries are handled and how to handle follow on conversations with buyers and their agents.

How to Deal with Buyer’s Agents

Knowing how to deal with buyer’s agents is a prerequisite for success as an Agent Assisted FSBO seller. This is because approximately 75% of home buyers are represented by buyers’ brokers. Know how to react in the rare instance you are the target of broker harassment.

How to Receive an Offer

Knowing how to receive, analyze and respond to offers is an important skill set for you to possess, especially if you are selling a co-op with a challenging board approval process.

How to Screen Offers

Screening all offers is an essential step in making sure your deal is on a path to success. Learn how to qualify home buyers as you receive offers on your home.

How to Negotiate with Buyers

How to Accept an Offer

Accepting an offer is an important step towards closing your deal, but it is by no means the end of the process. As a seller, it’s important to understand that there is nothing binding or contractual about accepting an offer.

How to Prepare a Deal Sheet

Preparing a deal sheet is the next step once you’ve accepted an offer as an Assisted FSBO seller.

How the Real Estate Closing Process Works

The contract to closing process is surprisingly easy as long as you have accepted an offer from a qualified home buyer and hired a seasoned real estate attorney.

How to Receive Board Approval

Receiving condo or co-op board approval for your sale requires the submission of a complete and well-presented board application. Although a condo board cannot reject applicants in the same way a co-op can, both building types usually have some form of application.
